Bat Out of Hell: The Musical Information
Jim Steinman's Bat Out of Hell: The Musical staged its New York premiere at New York City Center from August 1 to September 8, 2019.
The musical features iconic Meatloaf songs from the infamous "Bat Out of Hell" albums such as "I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)," "It's All Coming Back to Me Now," "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth," and, of course, the titular song. It premiered in Manchester, England in February 2017, before heading to the London Coliseum in June 2017 and then onto Toronto, Canada in October 2017. It returned to the West End for an open-ended engagement at the Dominion Theatre from April 2018 and played its final West End performance on January 5, 2019.
